The obverse side of the coin, which was processed by the medal maker Mgr. art. Peter Valach, is dominated by a stylized human brain formed by an intricate structure of printed circuits with a central microprocessor. The reverse side presents all the necessary elements of a valid coin with a nominal value of € 2.
The coin is set in a special collector's card.
